Even an old-timer like me has to admit that Daniel Craig's Bond is the best--okay, one of the two best--ever, so it's a real pity that his stint looks increasingly likely to end up a wasted opportunity. 'Skyfall' IS better than the dire 'Quantum', but not by nearly enough. The requisitely exciting pre-credit sequence is workmanlike rather than original (echoes of 'Casino Royale') and leads into one of the least interesting theme songs of the entire series.The next hour features plotting that is downright tedious, dialogue that falls flat time and again. Things pick up a bit with Javier Bardem, but his villainous characterisation starts and ends with a bottle-blond hairdo and a foppy voice--hardly a classic. The storyline that develops following his arrival has more to it than the decades of plotless Bonds that preceded Craig, but a few moments' thought will make you realize that it has more holes than it takes to fill the Albert Hall, The climax is fumbled. They supposedly waited for Sam Mendes to be available to direct 'Spectre'; on this showing, they needn't have bothered.

With 'Skyfall' having been the highest-grosser in the franchise, the producers probably see no reason to learn the lesson taught by 'Casino Royale': that even action movies benefit from a plot and good writing. But so long as they don't, they'll have a business that makes money out of widgets, not films.

Enjoyable film as usual excellent opening action sequence. Craig is good and adds the intensity that many like to the Bond role. (he's starting to look a bit older here though)
I do think the film could have been trimmed down a bit or tightened up sequence wise. After the opening there is a bit too much non Bond stuff going on for my tastes, I've no problems with a bit of exploration and talking stuff... some call it getting to know the characters. You could chop 25-30 minutes off this and it would be improved for it.

1 hour and 7 mins in we finally see Javier Bardem, ala Silva the disgruntled ex agent complete with a nice blonde dye job (it does make him very unusual and menacing looking) Javier is superb as the bad guy in this film his presence is felt in every scene he is in (some humorous moments too "oooh Mr Bond chair scene is memorable!). It's just a shame we have to wait this long to get to him.

This Bond film is thin on the gadgets, and some say the better for it. I've no issues with the back to basics take, or the non rule the world plot. Yes it does make a change to have an ex agent theme for this movie. There are some good sequences, but for me it's only when Silva arrives we really get stuck into things (and that's a good half way into the movie). Ending wise I though a little bit basic for me. And the pace of the movie felt too stretched out; as above a good trip to the cutting room would have helped in a lot of ways.

Overall I enjoyed it and surprisingly for a Bond film it does benefit from a second viewing. For me a 4/5 film one of the better Bond movies..but die hard gadget and all action Bond fans might not appreciate the more leisurely pace of the film.

"Those who live outside the city walls, and are self sufficient, are either Gods or Beasts". Aristotle

You know the feeling you get,when you read the first paragraph of a book and you know instantly, this is a book you don't want to put down? It is so good, that one paragraph, that you are hooked, line and sinker. .That is the feeling I get with every Denise Mina book. I don't know if I want to start it, because I don't want it to end. Yes, that's the feeling.

This is the third novel featuring Detective Superintendent Alex Morrow. The first two novels were superb, but this one was even better. The only complaint, it was too short, I needed more. In this novel there are three stories that seem separate, but all come together in the end. A man is shot in a post office, his four year old grandson with him, and the man waiting in line behind the man takes the boy under cover as the shots rang out. We follow politician, Kenny Gallagher, as he fights allegations of sexual affairs. And, we meet several policemen who find themselves involved in graft, taking money from the criminals they are employed to find. All of these stories are so well executed and the characters come to life, jump right off the page.

All this time DS Morrow is trying to do her job and care for her four month old twins. Dad has become the home daddy, but DS Morrow has the shifts from 2am - 6 am. Not much sleep, but lots of joy. DS Morrow is running the shop and doing her best to gain respect from her crew. She has a lot to handle, but she is the most ethical and moral of the lot. Her brother,Danny, is one of the biggest crooks in Glasgow. DS Morrow was vetted well, it took three or more months, but she passed with flying colors.

By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on 24 Feb. 2014
Format: DVD
The Daniel Craig movies have really injected new life into the James Bond franchise, but "Skyfall" is possibly one of the best Bond movies EVER.

This movie is not just a brilliant Bond movie, or a brilliant spy thriller, but a brilliant movie in general -- beautifully filmed, combining the old-school James Bond formula with a very 21st-century brand of terrorism. But what truly elevates this beautiful movie is Sam Mendes' focus on both Bond and M, and the terrible costs of living their lives.

A hard drive containing information on double agents is stolen in Istanbul, and Bond (Daniel Craig) nearly manages to get it back. But he's accidentally shot by Eve Moneypenny (Naomie Harris) and presumed dead. He's not dead, obviously -- but he uses this as a chance to retire to a tropical island.

But then MI6 is hacked by a cyberterrorist, and their headquarters is blown up. Bond reappears in London to offer his services to his country again, but he's obviously not fit for duty -- physically or psychologically. Despite this, M (Judi Dench) sends him back out to find the cyberterrorists before more agents are killed.

The trail leads him to Raoul Silva (Javier Bardem), a former agent who specializes in cyberterrorism. He blames M for his torture and mutilation, and is determined to destroy her career before killing her. Even capturing Silva isn't enough to stop him, and soon Bond must flee London with M to make a final stand against Silva.

If there is a underlying question to "Skyfall," it is this: Does an old-fashioned agent like James Bond belong in a world of cyberterrorism and individual extremism? Well, yes. The nature of conflict, evil and cruelty will never change, only the media through which they are spread.
